Istanbul Turkey Shopping

 

Istanbul offers unique and exotic shopping experience, with finest examples of the native arts and crafts. Grand Bazaar, a massive complex of 4000 shops, is essential place to visit. Kapaliçarsi Caddesi, a long street, leading to it, has many exclusive shops. Arasta Bazaar and Kucuk Ayasofia Caddesi are less overwhelming in scope but more off-putting because of prices.

The Egyptian Spice Bazaar is another inevitable highlight of any shopping tour. This extensive covered market features unique oriental spices, essences, herbs and medicinal plants. Istanbul Handicraft Center,  Istanbul Sanatlari Çarsisi, located in the restored building of the old medrese, offers handicrafts, ceramics and souvenirs. There are hand-painted silks, Anatolian dolls, calligraphic works and miniatures.

Istiklal Caddesi is a great promenade of clothing stores, record shops and bookshops. There are many quality bookshops with English books. Avrupa Pasaji across Galatasaray High School is a sequence of trendy shops, among them established brands as Mudo, Emporio Armani, Vakko, and Beyman.

Sahaflar and Horhor flea markets can offer a good deal for antiquities. Ortakoy arts-and-crafts market, held on Sundays, is an outlet for jewellery and revolutionary art ideas. The most worthy purchases in Turkey are unique carpets and kilims, hand-woven rugs with tribal patterns. Pillowcases, embroidered tablecloths, ornamental tea services, and brass coffee grinders are some of universally recommended household items.

Turkey manufactures some of the best leather items, compared with those sold in Florence, and in fact some of the merchandise in Florentine shops originates from here. Gold and silver jewellery, with which the shops are really bursting, can seem extremely cheap, but as the price of precious metals is fixed internationally, low cost refers only to machine-produced unpretentions items. Exclusive hand-made jewellery is not that bargain, but surely worth it. Kalpakçilar Caddesi in the Grand Bazaar offers astonishing choice.

Istanbul also has vast shopping malls, many of them boasting prestigious international awards for quality and service. Akmerkez is considered the most classy. Atrium Shopping Centre, Capitol Shopping Centre, Maxi City, Kanyon feature European quality and concept standards.
